  1. Agreed. She's very consistent at making music but she is extremely lacking in the charisma department and while she has a cute voice, she seems completely unable to belt or project any power, it's all whispering.

  2. I much prefer Ari's voice to Beyonce's (too much melisma/vibrato!) and Adele's (too one-note!). I might need a Rosetta Stone to understand the lyrics on some of Ari's earlier records, but I think her voice is way more versatile. That's not to say Beyonce/Adele can't sing (patently false), it's just splitting hairs I suppose.

    And the thought of Taylor standing in front of a microphone with only her voice and no theatrics is kind of a nightmarish scenario. Girlfriend's flat more than she's on-pitch, IMO.

  3. Her voice has seriously matured over the years, and those are some of the best moments during her concerts.

  5. "Extremely lacking in the charisma department"

    What in the Little Mix/The Saturdays of it all?

    Ariana is many things but lacking in charisma isn't one of them.
     
  6. Ddd not to keep stanning out for them in Ariana’s thread but Little Mix literally have infinitely more charisma on stage than Ari?
     
  7. Yeah, I don't rate Little Mix at all, but they're insanely good performers.

    The Saturdays, on the other hand... can't knock 'em for trying!
     
  8. Ddd imagine thinking Little Mix aren't some of the best performers out there.
     
  9. Outside of Bey and Gaga, there’s no other Western act that can touch them performing wise
     
  10. Too bad Little Mix can’t release music that matches their performance talent.

  11. What the hell is the first line of NASA's chorus? Some lyric sites and Apple Music say "give you the whole world"... but it doesn't sound like she's singing enough syllables...

    is it "be the whole world"?
     
  12. It's more of a "gi-ya the whole world"

    I thought it was "get off-world", and I honestly still wish it was that. It's much more compact and fits in better with the space travel/alone time theme.

  16. Just... look up the lyrics?
     
  17. I mentioned it in my post. Apple Music has them listed, but it just doesn't sound right. The vinyl doesn't feature them, does the CD booklet?

  19. If that’s the case, sis needs to release more ballads.
     
  20. The lyrics Apple Music has are right, she just drops some syllables so it’s more like ‘gi-ya the whole world’.

    Speaking of NASA, what a bop.
